    Agreed - they will be fine not being fed for a few days.

    Like mentioned, they'll be ok without food for 3-4 even 5 days at a time if they're well cared for. But if you tend to leave town, especially for more than a week or two they have automatic fish feeders that are relatively cheap and can be set to drop flakes/pellets everyday or twice a day etc.

    If you are only going for the weekend, I wouldn't even think about feeding them, or letting anyone else feed them, they will be fine. Only time to worry about feeding them, is if you will be gone for two weeks or more.

    It's usually pretty good for your fish for them to fast for a few days every so often. In the wild, they wouldn't have constant access to food.

    It's better to let them fast while you're away. Don't worry. :)

    As mentioned they will be fine without food for a weekend. Fish are cold blooded animals, so they do not use calories producing body heat. because of this, fish require less food than one would think.
